  • Sister Luke is based on a real-life former nun named Marie-Louise Habets, whom Audrey Hepburn consulted prior to production.
  • An often-reported legend surrounding this movie is the story that Hepburn demanded a bidet be provided for her on location in the Congo. Hepburn always denied this, wondering how such an extravagance could even be hooked up in the Congo.
